In Person Hypnosis Sessions are provided in Marblehead, Massachusetts.
I am a Certified Hypnotist and trained in hypnotism at Whole Health Hypnosis Academy for Wellness Arts where I learned the latest in evidence-based cognitive, body-mind intelligence, neuroscience and most effective hypnotic techniques and methods. I attended live classrooms and studied hands-on techniques. I am a Certified Member of the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH). The National Guild of Hypnotists is the oldest and largest hypnotism organization in the world and its certification is the most widely recognized credential for the professional practice of the hypnotic arts. I am a member and a Certified Hypnotist at the International Certification Board of Coaches and Hypnotists (ICBCH). I participate in annual education and training through educational events and other resources to maintain and enhance my training at the highest level. My highest degree is an Associate Degree, recognized by the United States of Department of Education. I have also worked for decades in the legal, insurance, financial and pharmaceutical industries.
My personal approach
I always make time for clients to ask questions or bring up any concerns before or after hypnosis sessions. I want my clients to be comfortable with hypnosis at all times and to feel safe. I discuss with each client their goals for the sessions and together we make a plan that is accepted by client. Clients may cancel and stop hypnosis at any time. I find by using my client's inner resources, words and language, I can create new positive suggestions. Positive new inner language is reinforced through hypnosis scripts and guided imagery to help people make positive life changes. Changes that can be applied at the subconscious level. I use hypnosis to lessen, alleviate, modify or alter unwanted behaviors, interpretations, experiences, thoughts and feelings that are outdated and no longer serving you. I like to ask how a client is feeling right now, what they are doing, how they would like to feel and how we can make that happen.
As hypnosis involves a human factor, I cannot ethically or professionally provide any guarantees on success rates, outcomes or results as individual results may vary from person to person.
Consultations are free and normally take 20 minutes.
Payments and Fees
Payments are made online when booking appointments. The fees for sessions are listed on our website. Typically, hypnosis sessions may average up to 40 to 90 minutes depending on the session. Attendance of sessions is essential. Please value and prioritize your sessions and be on time. Please provide 2 days' notice by email, phone or text if you cannot attend your appointment or you will forfeit your payment.
I do not offer refunds for sessions that are not used. I do not offer refunds for no-shows or cancellations less than 2 days prior to appointments.
I do not accept insurance. If you have a Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) or Flex Spending Account, please check with your policy as you may be able to seek reimbursement. I suggest you think of my services as something that you will pay for personally. That will both protect your privacy and help you value the work you are doing more. In general, insurance companies do not like to cover hypnotic services and I caution you not to expect them to do so.
